Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, April 29, 2024.

Congratulations to our Girls’ and Boys’ track teams, that both captured league championships this past week. Our boys’ team has now won its fifth consecutive South Coast League title, with its sixth in seven years. Our girls’ team has won its second consecutive South Coast League title.

Congratulations to our varsity boys swim team, named Sea View League Champions. The boys joined the open and JV teams and won convincingly with many swimmers medaling in Finals this last Friday. Unified swim did great as well, and will continue on to CIF-SS finals on May 3rd. Multiple swimmers and relay teams qualified for prelims on Wednesday at Mt. Sac: 200 Medley relay, 200 freestyle (DJ Stupak and William Liang), 200 IM (Apollo Aceves), 500 Freestyle (Josh Davis and DJ Stupak), 100 Backstroke (Apollo Aceves and Nathan Winarto), and 400 Free Relay. Good luck swimmers!   

CIF Athletics also continues for Spring Sports this week with Tennis, Girls' and Boys' Lacrosse, and Baseball beginning their quests for a CIF Championship.  The matches are away this week for Lacrosse, and the locations and times are to be determined for Tennis and Baseball.  CIF Track Prelims will be this Saturday in the stadium at 8 am.

Congratulations to our Boys' Volleyball team, as they finished their season on Saturday.  In round one of CIF, they defeated Corona Santiago in straight sets, then advanced to round 2 this past Saturday.  They fought hard, but eventually fell to Long Beach Poly in 5 games.  Shout out to Coach Hollaway and Coach Moothart on a great season!

Tonight at 6 PM in the gym, we will celebrate outstanding students from grades 9-11 for our Awards Night.

Tomorrow, Athletics celebrates students who have made commitments to play sports at NCAA, NAIA, and CCCAA schools next year.  This celebration is intended for immediate family members, coaches, and close friends of these student athletes.  This event will take place in the gym during Flex Time.

The Band will have its Spring Showcase this Saturday, at 7 pm in the gym.

I also wanted to give a shout-out to Kylee Golz, she has been recognized as the California State Girls Freestyle Wrestling Champion. Way to go Kylee!

Their annual scholarships encourage young artists and musicians to share their work and pursue a career in the arts.

Many congratulations to:

We also took a moment to celebrate the incredible legacy of THHS Ceramics educator, Ms. Jacque Fait, through a moving speech from her daughter, LHHS Art teacher, Ms. Loni Gallo. Ms. Fait will retire from teaching at the end of this school year. She has left an indelible mark on our district and will be sorely missed!

Mustang Golf

Mustang Golf will have a two week camp at Lake Forest Golf and Practice Center in June and a six week summer league at Oso Creek Golf Course focusing on the development of skills and competitive play.  All returning players (girls & boys) and new players are welcome.  Sign-ups will open on the student webstory on May 1st - sign up early to secure your spot. 

This camp will also serve as an alternative to tryouts and better enable coaches to evaluate players and determine their rosters for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Players are strongly encouraged to participate in summer camp & league play.  If a player is unable to participate in the camp, they will need to contact the coach if they wish to be on the team in order to be evaluated and placed on the roster.   The season of competition for fall sports (girls golf) begins at the start of August which is prior to the school year.

THHS Architecture 2 & 3 Students

Students were asked to design and build a 3D model of a small town using cardboard. Each group of 2 or 3 students chose a different type of building to be part of the town. Once all buildings were designed and built, they planned and designed the streets, blocks, parks, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, parking space, etc... The model is at  1/8" = 1'-0" scale. Great job!

graduation leis for sale


All seniors must meet all SVUSD graduation requirements in order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.  I encourage you to monitor your senior’s grades carefully during this important part of the school year.  Any failure of a required course will automatically prevent a student from participating in the Graduation Ceremony.

Seniors must follow all school policies up through and including graduation.  All financial and disciplinary obligations, as well as attendance at all mandatory graduation practices, must be fulfilled or participation in senior activities including the Graduation Ceremony, will be jeopardized.

Demerit Recovery and Graduation

In order to avoid jeopardizing participation in senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony, all senior students must have resolved all discipline consequences.  If there are any questions regarding behavior contracts or any outstanding discipline consequences, students should follow up with an Assistant Principal of Supervision. Each hour of discipline consequences equals 1 demerit.  Any senior student with demerits on their record must serve all assigned hours until their demerits equal ZERO (0) before they will be allowed to attend Prom, participate in any senior activities, or Graduation Ceremony.  A schedule of assigned hours of discipline consequences along with the intended days to serve must be arranged with the Supervision Office immediately. 

Senior Pranks

Please note this word of caution about “senior pranks.”  Some of our students in the past without any disciplinary history have participated in a senior prank that resulted in lost opportunities and privileges.  There is no such thing as a safe senior prank. Consequences could include loss of senior activities and may jeopardize participation in the Graduation Ceremony.  If you become aware of such a plan, please inform the school and do not allow your senior to participate.  Students should never be on school grounds outside of school hours for any reason other than official school business or activities. 

Please help your senior make good choices to ensure their participation in all senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony.

 Suspensions and Expulsions

Be advised that the Saddleback Valley Unified School District has a strict policy against the use or possession of drugs, alcohol, and weapons, and any other expellable offenses outlined by the California Education Code.  Please note that if a student commits ANY expellable offense and is recommended for expulsion, they will be excluded from Prom, ALL senior activities, extra-curricular activities, and the Graduation Ceremony during the expulsion.  Any student that is suspended and/or placed on a behavior contract for violations such as drug/alcohol possession or use, bullying or harassment, committing an obscene act, and possession of a weapon or dangerous object, within the last 45 days of school will not be able to attend prom, senior activities, and may be excluded from the Graduation Ceremony. 

Behavior Expectations for the Graduation Ceremony

Students attempting to disrupt the integrity and grace of the Graduation Ceremony will be removed during the ceremony immediately.

Your support in discussing the importance of maintaining appropriate behavior through the end of the year as well as the severity of consequences for violating our behavior expectations is greatly appreciated and can ensure a positive experience during this exciting time for your family. 

We want to ensure that all of our graduating seniors have the memorable experience of participating in their High School Graduation and your support is greatly appreciated. 

I look forward to seeing you at graduation on May 30th.
